Cram life into every minute, 11/3/15

Tuesday, November 03, 2015

Fall back! It is clear, at least to me, that my own frenetic pace is making me sick. For my own health I need to cut down my productivity at work, which fills me with shame and fear. I feel like that dutchboy with his finger in the dam, and I feel like I just decided to walk away. I pull my hours and I get projects completed, but I take more breaks. I do fewer projects. I set work aside. It helps that I have new distractions that are important to me. I think about what I want to write for the day for my November novel. I assess my body and what kind of exercise she needs at the gym. I am no longer given the wide berth of calories as once before (I set my nutrition so cardio does not impact my daily calories) so I need to be more mindful of my meals--I had a big breakfast this morning and I have a healthy lunch prepared plus a luscious snack (siggi yogurt) so I intend to have a light dinner) We vote in life with our dollars and our hours. For a long time I said health, family and writing were important to me, but now I am trying to live those words.

    Work should never be more important than your well being. I think you are doing it right. Plus a creative outlet might just be what's most important for your mental health and your continued stamina. You got this.
